The Lies in Our Stories


“Where are you?” This is the first question God poses to Adam and Eve after they sin (Genesis 3).

To enter into conversations about race and justice, we must start here – recognizing the divine fingerprints on every human being, while also reckoning with how sin perpetuates injustice, bitterness, and shame in our hearts, minds, and actions.
